Bao Yuankai is among China's most beloved classical composers. Writing, for the most part in the officially sanctioned 'Pentatonic Romanticism' idiom, Bao's music frequently draws upon regional folk songs and traditional Chinese culture for inspiration. The current disc features a bit of an oddity from Bao's pen - a full-scale propaganda symphony. Musically and ideologically this work compares favorably to Shostakovitch's 12th Symphony. Unlike Bao's other more successful folk-music inspired pieces, it is not likely that "The Son of the People" will be dusted off too many times in the future, adding to the rarity and collectability of the present recording.
1. Largo: China in distress
2. Presto: The Struggle
3. Adagio: Meditation
4. A Joyous Allegro: Hope
